Comedian Nikki Glaser deleted a weeks-old tweet Tuesday aimed at Donald Trump Jr. and his wife following news of their divorce. She noted that the couple had five kids and asked “Why are people still allowed to have five kids?” Glaser told her followers Monday that she was tired of people insulting her over that sentiment and had deleted the tweet but stood by it, asking how it was a “controversial statement.”
Glaser’s initial and subsequent tweet generated a lot of controversy and plenty of responses.
Glaser then claimed that her tweet was really about adoption.
It’s about having kids when you could really just adopt. I understand wanting you own, but then have two biological ones and then adopt the other 3. There’s no need for 5 new kids on earth.
